Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
Happy Spring! It seems like it was a loooong time coming!
For the second quarter of the semester, we are learning about energy: renewable and nonrenewable energy resources, potential and kinetic states of energy, and transformation of energy from one type to another.
After spring break we begin our study of water... properties, places, and quality all in preparation of our field trip on May 6 to the Frontier Culture Museum's stream and testing.
During the entire semester we study the scientific method, as it pertains to answering an unknown question. We practice our skills in: Observation, Inquiry (the question/ what do we want to learn about a topic), Hypothesis, Research, Experiment, Data, Analysis and Conclusion. These can be tough concepts for kids. Please talk to your child to see what he/she is learning
Thank you for your continued support of your child and our school!
